PEORIA COUNTY, Ill. -- A motorcyclist and his passenger have died following an accident Saturday night on Farmington Road.

The victims are Billy Hubbert, 60, of Girard, and Robyn Baker-Barrett, 60, of Carlinville.

They were taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center where they died Sunday afternoon.

The coroner said the two victims were not wearing helmets, and preliminary autopsies show both died from multiple injuries sustained in the crash.

The car involved has not been located.
